Mossad Chief Yossi Cohen said Iran is continuing to develop nuclear weapons, warning the international community to either change or cancel the Iran deal.

In a meeting, Cohen said the Iran deal was "an awful mistake that allows the country to preserve completely crucial elements of its nuclear plan, and it will remove the various restrictions within a few years."

"Iran will succeed in enriching enough uranium to build an arsenal of nuclear weapons," Cohen warned.

He slammed the decision to remove sanctions, and emphasized that Iran has continued to develop its long-term ballistic missile program.

"As the head of the Mossad, I am 100% certain that Iran never abandoned its vision and plan of a nuclear-armed military for even one second. The failure to change or cancel the deal will create an existential threat for Israel," he emphasized.
